Can't Make This Up

[posted by Callimachus]

As my reporter friend points out, this story is amusing on a number of levels.

  • Phone company blithely rips off old woman for $14,000.

  • Editor has to get reporter to describe exactly what a rotary-dial telephone is, for modern readers.

  • Reporter screws it up.

  • Old woman's name is E.Strogen

Pick your starting point on this one.
